ExcelinEd Celebrates National School Choice Week in Nevada!
Tallahassee, Fla. – The Foundation for Excellence in Education (@ExcelinEd) proudly supported and participated in the Nevada National School Choice Week event today. In the Silver State, it is an especially significant celebration as Nevada implemented the nation’s first Universal Education Savings Account last year.
Around the nation, an anticipated 16,000+ events will be held this week in support of school choice. For more information on these events, go to SchoolChoiceWeek.com. Follow @ExcelinEd for live updates, and join the social media conversation on this and other #SCW events.
ExcelinEd’s CEO Patricia Levesque said, “A quality education can change a child’s life. Empowering all parents with the ability to choose the best school or environment for their child is the key to ensuring children receive this quality education. When parents are empowered, schools are incentivized to organize around the goal of academic success for each and every child.”
Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) place state dollars designated for a child’s education in a personal account that parents can manage to cover the cost of customized learning. Account funds can cover multiple education options, including private school tuition, online education, tutoring and dual enrollment. ExcelinEd promotes the expansion of ESAs in states as a way for parents to care for their child’s unique needs. ESAs create an entirely flexible approach to education, where the ultimate goal is maximizing each child’s natural learning abilities.
Right now, Nevada’s Universal Education Savings Account Program is under attack. The lawsuits against the program and the recent judge’s injunction will cause irreparable harm, disruption and uncertainty for Nevada families and the 4,100 children who were counting on these accounts for their education.
